Congrats to Canada for playing a solid game, particularly in the 3rd period keeping the US away from their net. Congratulations aside, the refs call on the 2nd goal was one of the worst calls I have ever witnessed. The officiating crew was clearly was out of their depth today ( missing 2 of the 3 too many players instances and some curious inconsistencies in body contact penalties on both sides of the equation.) The call on the goal, however, was the doozy since it had a major impact on the game and it was absolutely wrong. Not sure what the video review rules are and if there is audio involved but as far as the officiating guidelines are- the play is actually dead when the referee makes the DECISION to blow the whistle and that equalises referees in their ability to get their whistle blown and any physical limitations to that happening. e.g. I am the ref and i lose sight of the puck and decide to blow my whistle, while i am in the process of getting the whistle blown when a player bumps into me and I can't get the whistle in my mouth for a second or two. meanwhile the puck squirts out and into the net. A good referee will disallow the goal, despite the seeming unfairness and protestations of the coaches. It has to be that way because of how things can happen in hockey and it takes the subjectivity out of the decision for the ref. In this case the whistle blew before it crossed the line but what makes it worse is that the play was dead before the whistle blew based on guidelines of when the play ends. Which means the play was officially dead inches if not feet before crossing the line. The officials inexperience is really disappointing. The Japan disallowed goal is another perfect example.
